The Janssen Pharmaceutical Companies of Johnson & Johnson announced today that more than 30 company-sponsored studies, including six oral presentations, will be featured during the 2021 American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Annual Meeting, June 4-8. Janssen presentations will include new data and updates for both approved and investigational therapeutics that are being studied for the treatment of various solid tumors and blood cancers. Immediately following ASCO, additional data will be featured during the European Hematology Association (EHA) Virtual Congress, June 9-17. A complete list of Janssen-sponsored abstracts scheduled for presentation during ASCO and EHA is available at the Janssen Oncology Virtual Newsroom. 

"Through a deliberate scientific focus on deep disease understanding, we continue to advance a diverse, differentiated portfolio and pipeline of targeted therapies and combination regimens in select cancers where unmet medical needs persist," said Peter Lebowitz, M.D., Ph.D., Global Therapeutic Area Head, Oncology, Janssen Research & Development, LLC. "At this year's ASCO, we look forward to presenting the latest research from our dedicated scientists on behalf of investigators, study centers, and the patients participating in our programs, with a focus on improving the lives of patients diagnosed with cancer and driving toward the elimination of cancer in the future."

"At Janssen Oncology, we are driven by our mission to reimagine cancer care and to ultimately drive better outcomes for people living with cancer," said Serge Messerlian, President, Oncology, Janssen Biotech, Inc. "Our latest scientific research at ASCO represents our commitment to advancing treatment options across a broad range of difficult-to-treat cancers, disease stages, and risk factors. We are acting with urgency to deliver new therapies and hope to patients who currently have limited or no current treatment options."

Key highlights from Janssen-sponsored studies to be presented at ASCO include:
